How beautiful is this NY wedding!

My New York Luxury Wedding Invitations | Yay! picts to share from my Long Beach, New York Beach Wedding

Hi Everyone! So I've been wanting to share these wedding pictures of my luxury wedding invitations for so long now! And I finally got the picts to share with all of you.

My custom invitations, designed of course by Lela New York, were designed in a story book style to share with our guests the story of how we met and how we fell in love and said I do at the beach. Our boxed invitations have a beautiful linen fabric cover and gold embroidery on the front. The first page was printed in a gorgeous gold foil on a pale blush paper and the inside pages were printed to tell our love story and contained our engagement pictures. I love the cute map of Long Beach that I made for the end papers of the invitation book. The RSVP sets were also printed in a blush pink paper and gold printed to make them shine!

I was so excited to get the cute RSVP responses from my guests as they replied by saying how much they loved them!

I hope you love them as much as I do!

Valentine's Day Wedding-Empire State Building

I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine's Day. Here is what some lucky couple got the chance to do.

It’s an annual tradition for couples to tie the knot on Valentine’s Day atop the Empire State Building in New York City. The event is sponsored by which held an online contest late last year selecting the very best love story submissions. In all, 14 couples won the opportunity and one of them was Lindenhurst, New York firefighters Sarah Carpino and George Callahan.

Enjoy the video!

Happy Valentine's Day | Super cute last minute I LOVE YOU gift | Marshmallow on a String

Ok, so I died a little when I saw these super cute marshmallow "I Love you's" on a string! They are great for dunking in a nice cup of cocoa.  If you are a bit of a procrastinator, like me ;) these are so easy to whip up even I can do it ;) I don't usually go for any DIY projects but this one is so sweet!

you will need:
baker's twine
tapestry needle
red cardstock
edible writers (optional)

what to do:
Take a piece of baker's twine about 8 to 10 inches long. Thread the tapestry needle. Make a double or triple knot in one end of the twine and snip off the excess.

Grease the needle with shortening (I use Crisco).

Thread the twine through a marshmallow. Pull the marshmallow until the knot hits the base of the marshmallow (don't pull too hard or you'll pull the knot through the marshmallow). Pull the needle off the twine.

Cut out two hearts from the paper and glue, staple or tape at the end of the twine.

If desired, draw a message on the marshmallow with the edible writers. Dunk in hot cocoa (be warned, edible ink will run in funny ways when the marshmallow hits the cocoa) and discard string when marshmallow dissolves.
